Weekend art show draws in Long Beach locals

June 15, 2012 by  

Last weekend, starting Saturday, June 9, the 18th annual City of Long Beach Fine Arts Show was held at Kennedy Plaza in Long Beach, New York.

The showcase featured the work of numerous artists, displaying and selling their work throughout the weekend. The show featured a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, and mixed media. On the Saturday, awards were given out to an artist of each medium, and a “Best in Show” award was handed out as well.

The Long Beach Farmers Market was also on site for the best part of the weekend and there was live music, presented by the Long Beach Public Library, to entertain the attendees throughout. On Saturday, Stick-Tet, a jazz and Latin fusion band, performed prior to the awards ceremony and, following the awards, County Line performed some country music classics. On Sunday, Benoir and the Long Beach All-Stars took to the stage in the early afternoon, followed by the LI Harmonica Club later on in the day.

With this being a popular and long-running annual event, there will probably already be plans afoot to contact printing companies to assist in promoting next year’s Long Beach Fine Arts Show, as the artists, farmers, and bands will want to draw in crowds from nearby areas like Wantagh or Levittown. The artists and farmers may also need informational brochures printed, to inform buyers about their work or food. They may need banner printing as well, so that they can draw attention to their booths.
